AG Announced as ‘Jewellery Designer of the Year’ Finalist 2013
It’s with a huge sense of delight that I can announce I’ve been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Jewellery Designer of the Year’ category in the UK Jewellery Awards 2013.
To tell you the truth I’m bowled over by the news – 2013 has been something of a whirlwind, and already ranks as one of the busiest ever for the AG brand. I really feel like my desire to create is stronger that ever, and the inspiration for new designs appears to be coming thick and fast.
Perhaps it’s the birth of baby Arthur that has opened my mind to the vast untapped potential of my designs, or maybe it’s the fact I’ve been taking a long hard look at the AG brand as a whole. Whatever it might be, the speed and ferocity of evolution is a little unnerving at times, but I’m so grateful for the positive feedback that I’m sure I’m doing the right thing and designing from the heart (or somewhere a little deeper perhaps?)
Now more than ever I feel sure I’m designing uncompromising works of art that instigate that wonderful feeling which comes from marveling at something of true beauty.
Keep everything crossed for me AG friends and huge thanks for all your support so far.
Revealed. The beautiful Cannelé.
Lighter and finer than the usual AG piece, I believe the Cannelé is one of the most impeccable pieces I’ve ever designed. I’m seriously excited about this one (as you might have gathered). It’s not that this beautiful platinum diamond ring is in any way better than my past designs, just that it has tapped into a very different style for me – perhaps brought on by my son Arthur’s birth.

Revealed. The Creation Pendant Diamond and Sapphire.
Last year, we asked AG customers what they’d like to see more of. The answer was a resounding, ‘more statement pieces such as pendants and earrings’. As you know, we are all about aiming to delight – so inspired by the growing bump, which was soon to become the splendid little Arthur, I designed the Creation Pendant Diamond and Sapphire, something I hope you’ll agree has turned out rather well…
Paying Homage to the Classics
You would think that when approaching twenty years in business, I must be showing signs of apathy or desire for a change. I can hand on heart tell you that this is simply not the case. In fact, totally the opposite! I am enjoying business more than ever and my creativity seems to be equally stimulated and inspired. I am aware of a shift though which is in itself creating a very exciting development with the AG collection. (more…)
